I was unsure of this one. I'm happy with lucidus

Much thought went into this one. The head pattern shows lucidus but the under tail showed basalis. Specimens were checked in the National Collection to show that in fact lucidus has more rufous in the tail than most books suggest. The correct undertail colouring can be found in HANZAB. Chris

Thanks Chris. I settled on basalis because of the undertail colour.
